At Title Nine we are committed to helping girls get off the sidelines and into the game. We know firsthand the power of sports and teamwork to shape who we are, and who we grow to become. That’s why we are hosting Back to Sports Fridays this September. Shop at any of our Title Nine stores on the last four Fridays in September and 9% of our sales will be donated to a local chapter of the Girls on the Run, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring and motivating girls through sports.

T9 Gives Back to Sports!

Back to Sports We are proud to help get women and girls off the sidelines and into the game, with programs like our Back to Sports Fridays. A portion of our retail proceeds each Friday in September went to supporting women’s and girls’ sports teams. We gave out over $18,000 across our 23 retail locations!

It was a tough job, but each store picked a winning team to receive the proceeds from not just one, but four shopping events in the month of September. Check out some of their stories below. (more…)
